One doe with my bow and one doe with gun, passed up several nice bucks with both still looking,seen him yesterday morning he made it through gun season been hunting him two years maybe I will run into him in muzzlerloader season
Took a nice doe on opening day. I used the new changes in the Indiana rules to hunt with my .357 magnum lever action. Shot the doe between 50 and 60 yards, and she dropped at the shot. Did not see any horns the rest of the season, but I've got a nice little supply of some tasty venison in the freezer now.
This was the first time I seriously hunted in Indiana for deer. This year I had two non hunting friends recommend their dads farm. One location was a waste of time, another location was extremely crowded, and another location I found tracks and got myself setup right, but never saw a buck. Kind of a depressing deer season getting skunked and all. I usually travel when I hunt deer and at least see some. In any event I enjoyed it a little bit more this year because I alternated between hunting with my shotgun and my puma lever action 44. Something about hunting with a lever action makes it more for. Next year I need to find a better spot or travel again. Almost hit a small 6pt with my truck last night though. Figures I'd see him after the season was over.
I was lucky enough to take 3 deer this past season. During the 2nd week of bow I arrowed a 7 point that dressed at almost 140#. Then on a deer reduction hunt at Tippecanoe State Park I took a good sized doe with 12ga USH and during the last week of muzzleloader I took a small doe with .50 cal Huntsman muzzleloader. The buck and small doe were taken in southern Miami county and the large doe was taken in Pulaski county. I live in Howard county and hunted this county but had no success...It is getting about time to go out and look for shed antlers, it has been a few years since i've found any......
